Brune for free.The Cuban-Caribbean Missile Crisis of October 1962, so designated by Soviet and Cuban officials and scholars, brought the United States and the Soviet Union to brink of nuclear war. This timely study provides students of international affairs an opportunity to examine in detail the decision-making processes which first caused, and then later enabled the two powers to resolve, the crisis.
Between 1989 and 1994 conferences have been held featuring U.S., Soviet and Cuban participants in the crisis as well as scholars seeking to clarify that event. Declassified documents from these three nations, as well as memoirs and interviews, have provided additional information regarding the period before, during and after that event. Not unexpectedly, the new material has raised controversy as well as providing enlightenment.
Of particular value to librarians and researchers is the extensive bibliography of the essential literature which Brune has appended to his study.
